    by Wolf

    Having just told a cute female bartender that he wanted to come back in his
    second life as a bottle opener, so he can slide around in her back pocket, this
    narrator leaves her bar and smashes his car into a tree. He does indeed wake up
    as a bottle opener and finds himself hanging on a string tied to a hook in the
    ceiling of a Lawton, Oklahoma bar. The opener, realizing that he is now "a dead
    man", loses any fear of speaking what is on his mind. Since no one can hear him
    anyway, he immediately begins ranting about the starving children in America,
    politics, lawyers, lobbyists, the media, cell phones and many other pet peeves
    he's harbored through out his life. Oddly, he can see and hear and constantly
    hears organ music and some type of ticker tape machine, or maybe a typewriter in
    the back ground. The bottle opener is moved to various bars around America and
    the world. Before long he realizes that he is following the path of his real
    life and begins to worry. As he (it) moves from bar to bar he continues to let
    loose with the many things that he hated when alive. Foreign aid is strongly
    questioned and the cost of the war in Iraq almost has the bottle opener tongue
    tied. As time goes on, he is sad that he did not get to do more with his life.
    He soon realizes that the young people in America should start earlier in their
    lives to learn about politics and other issues that will affect their future
    while they can still make a difference. Please don't start reading at the end of
    the book . live a little of a bottle opener's life first
